About Us

Recycling has been a part of UNC Charlotte since 1990, when a group of student volunteers began collecting aluminum cans on campus. Over the years, the program has grown in number of staff and types of materials collected. The Recycling Program has received a variety of awards for innovative recycling practices, including Zero Waste Football and Construction/Demolition Recycling. Our team is made up of 16 staff members who administer hauling contracts, provide educational information, and collect recycling from over 1,000 bins per week.  We are seen throughout campus wearing our signature green "UNC Charlotte Recycles" shirts.
